Our team of neurosurgeons, neurologists and researchers are inventing treatment, restoring patient confidence and saving lives. No compromise. Just thinking of you.

Diagnostic Testing

Evaluating and diagnosing conditions affecting the brain, spine and nervous system is complicated and complex. We use the following tests to accurately diagnose each patient’s condition and build the best care plan possible.

Specialty Clinics

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) Clinic: This unique clinic includes specialists in neurosurgery, cognitive neurologists, and specially trained physical therapists who diagnose, evaluate and treat this common neurological problem. NPH is very often misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease or other conditions. NPH can be quickly and successfully treated once properly assessed by our team.
  • Chiari Malformation Center of Excellence: Our dedicated team leads the field in diagnosis, surgical treatment – when appropriate, and lifelong treatment of this disease. Recognized nationally, we receive referrals for our unique set of skills focused on the treatment and care of each individual patient.
  • Balance Clinic: A clinic focused on individually addressing patients with balance issues and providing customized solutions enabling them to lead safer, more productive lives.

Programs and Services

Neurosurgery OR Suite with Biplane Imaging Technology

Our neurosurgeons perform lifesaving minimally invasive endovascular procedures in a hybrid operating room located at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, Pa. A revolutionary alternative to conventional operating rooms, the hybrid OR enables our team to treat high-risk patients who need immediate surgical intervention. It is equipped with a biplane advanced imaging system that delivers detailed, high-quality 3D X-ray images during the surgical procedure.

Together, the hybrid OR and biplane technology are used to treat conditions such as stroke, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, and brain tumor. We are available 24/7 for emergency surgeries.

Emergency and Critical Care

Global Neurosciences Institute at Crozer offers the region’s first, and only, Neurologic Emergency Department (Neuro ED), located at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The Neuro ED model was conceived and first implemented in the U.S. by GNI. Our fellowship-trained emergency room physicians focus on assessing and treating neurological disease patients who present to the ED. Our approach to dramatically expedite treatment time for patients with life-threatening conditions provides the best care possible for patients and their families.

Our Neurologic Intensive Care Unit (Neuro ICU) at Crozer-Chester Medical Center provides dedicated care to patients with life-threatening neurological problems. It is a dedicated ICU model where all patients are managed exclusively by our team and clinical support.
